I actually started this drawing for I.F.’s theme “Robot”, but I missed the boat. I think it works for both themes. Freshly inked, here it is:
Scarlet dreams of scarlet seas she finds on the sidewalk during an episode. Satin protects her the way Satan couldn’t.
Sweet jayzus, it’s been a long time since my eyes graced the theme for Illustration Friday. This week the topic is “Eye Glasses”. I feel that this illustration needs a story, so I’m going to tell you one. When I was a little It, I developed a passionate madness for a gorgeous, gorgeous man lovedContinue reading “Illustration Friday: “Eye Glasses””
